Bridges Across speaks to the idea that furthering humanity happens together. When we come together to share ideas, first locally, we build bridges to greater ideas, which eventually connect us to other people around the world. Bridging the gaps between one another through storytelling and idea sharing builds empathy in people as individuals. It elucidates commonalities among all participants of the human experience. Doing so doesn't just bring us closer, but it paves the way in tackling some of our planet's most pressing issues.
